Individual Retirement Account
Traditional | Roth
An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a tax-sheltered plan that allows you build a secure financial future. We offer an array of Investment products to choose from for your retirement plans.
A Traditional IRA
With a Traditional IRA, you can contribute up to $5,500.00 per tax year. Your contribution may be tax-deductible and your earnings will grow tax deferred. Any distributions from your IRA are taxable in the year you receive it. If you are under age 59½, the distribution is subject to a 10% penalty. At age 70½, you are required to take a minimum distribution from your traditional IRA. You must be younger than 70½ and have earned income to open a Traditional IRA.
A Roth IRA
With a Roth IRA, you can contribute up to $5,500.00 per year. The contribution is not tax-deductible, yet the earnings will grow tax free. Individuals who qualify may make contributions past the age 70½ and there are no required minimum distributions required.
There are eligibility requirements for contributing the maximum of $5,500.00 to a Roth IRA. For a single filer: your adjusted gross income (AGI) up to $101,000.00 qualifies you for a full contribution ($101,000.00-$116,000.00 to be eligible for a partial contribution). For joint filers: up to $159,000. AGI qualifies you for the full contribution ($159,000.00-$169,000.00 to be eligible for a partial contribution)
Traditional and Roth
If you are age 50 by the end of the year you are eligible for a “catch up” contribution. This means you can deposit an additional $1,000.00 into your Traditional or Roth IRA, making your limit $6,500.00.
The deadline for making an IRA contribution is generally April 15th. If this day falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline is the next business day.
